Strange But True!
I recently installed a sound card in a WINDOWS 95 PC. The system detected the new hardware
and requested the install disk. WINDOWS 95 then complained that it couldn't locate the
required files. I ran the disk over to another system. The files were there!|
I cancelled the install. In WINDOWS EXPLORER I saw that the HIDE FILES WITH THESE EXTENSIONS
was enabled. I disabled that by enabling SHOW ALL FILE TYPES. I then REMOVED the
incorrectly installed hardware in the SYSTEM section of CONTROL PANEL.
After a RESTART THE COMPUTER, the new hardware was again detected. WINDOWS 95 detected
almost all the required files on the disk - almost. It said that it actually could not find
one file. By clicking BROWSE, it got that one, too - on the second bounce, so to speak.
